Joey Drew Studios Logo

Joey Drew Studios, also known as the workshop, is the establishment and the main setting where Bendy and the Ink Machine takes place. Owned by Joey Drew, this is where he, his friend Henry, and all other workers collaborate 30 years for producing series of Bendy cartoons before in-game.


This obviously massive building is known for being the place where Henry help create and used to work with his friend, Joey Drew, making Bendy cartoons, along with many others. It is also the place where Henry starts in-game to go and find the Ink Machine, as a task. At the start of the game, Henry receives a letter from Joey saying that he should come to "his" old workshop, because he has something to show him. There is a few amount of places owned by collaborators within this studio; Music Department by Sammy Lawrence, Heavenly Toys by Shawn Flynn, and Accounting & Finance by Grant Cohen.

In-game just in time when Henry revisits Joey Drew Studios from the beginning chapter, it appears that the studio was defunct and long-time abandoned for years, with the inside containing a lot of mess like ink spills, cobwebs, cracks on walls, etc.


As of yet, there are 13 known workers collaborating at Joey Drew's Studio:
